Coronavirus in Oklahoma: Oklahoman shares story of positive diagnosis

On social media Brooke asked, "Are you staying home?"

Her post continued, "You think you’re fine. No symptoms right? Cool, that’s what I thought too."

Brooke shared her journey that began with annoying allergy symptoms, followed by feeling silly for getting tested for COVID-19, to receiving a positive diagnosis.

You can watch her interview above. 

Brooke has received many positive responses to her posts. She added, "But somewhere before me, someone else thought the same thing and guess what? They gave it to me... and there’s a real chance I’ve given it to someone else and let me just tell you... that feels like garbage. 

"Don’t be me. Don’t be the person before me."
